“This past year has been extremely difficult for so many members of our community and they rely on Mission services to feel safe and cared for” said Heather Engle, CEO of LVRM. “The support of Cox and their 1,600+ employees is overwhelming and beautiful, and we are so honored to have been chosen as their partner for this event to allow us to make our shelter feel more like home for those in need.”
